Topic 1: You know, NBA players have it rough. They make millions
of dollars, play basketball for a living and get all kinds of women
hanging all over them. Five games into the season and Ron Artest is
a little tired. He needs a break. That’s understandable, right?
He’s about to release a rap CD, clearly this guy is just all kinds
Baker: Recording a record is tough business, especially when you
have to go play afterwards.
Bondy: Artest is a joke. You can take Artest, Terrell Owens and
Maurice Clarrett and put them where they belong, World Wrestling
Entertainment. They’re nothing but drama.
Baker: He had a great quote, “I was ready to take some time off,
at least like a month off, but two games is enough.”
Bondy: I hate to say it but the guy has talent. If he didn’t,
he’d be long gone.
Topic 2: The Steelers seem to be sitting atop the NFL power
rankings, followed by the Patriots and Eagles. But who is the
fourth best team in the league?
Bondy: I’m going with the Colts because they have the best
offense in football.
Baker: Definitely the Atlanta Falcons because Michael Vick is
the best athlete in football.
Bondy: Sorry Bronco fans, your team is not the fourth best. With
key losses to Cincinnati, Jacksonville and an embarrassing display
against Atlanta, they don’t deserve anything better than
Baker: There’s definitely a big drop-off after those first three
teams. Denver is in the second tier of the league.
Topic 3: Q and A Lightning Round?
Baker: What happened to Utah in the BCS?
Bondy: They got screwed, robbed and ruined.
Bondy: Will the Yankees acquire my MVP Adrian Beltran?
Baker: Yes, they do what they want.
Baker: Better movie? “Team America: World Police” or “Napoleon
Bondy: Napoleon Dynamite because he looks just like Baker’s
Bondy: Skiing or snowboarding?
Baker: Skiing. Snowboarding is for people who think skiing is
Baker: College football game of the week is Georgia at Auburn,
Bondy: I pray to the football gods that Auburn gets romped.
Bondy: Second best game of the week: the McNeese State Cowboys
versus the Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks. Who wins?
Baker: I’m pretty sure a Lumberjack can beat up a Cowboy.
Baker: Should Nuggets head coach Jeff Bzdelik be given the boot
after a 1-4 start?
Bondy: Yes. They have too much talent to start that bad. He
better get things going fast.
Topic 4: The sixth (CSU) and seventh (UNLV) ranked teams in the
Mountain West face off this Saturday at Hughes Stadium for the
Rams’ last home game of the year. Both teams aren’t looking so good
lately. Now with nothing to play for but pride, will the Rams go
balls to the wall and win?
Baker: The weather will undoubtedly be a factor.
Bondy: UNLV has a strong running game and CSU has a weak running
defense. That equals, bad news bears.
Baker: Walter Matthau.
Bondy: I think the Rammies have trouble in the snow and go down
by a score of 21-13.
Baker: The Runnin’ Rebels will be running all over CSU. UNLV
will win 27-10.
Closing statements and words to the wise:
Bondy: If you want to see some quality football games this
Baker: Come watch the Collegian kick the crap out of KCSU and
CTV this Sunday at noon on the intramural fields.
